and the verse i shared with you in the previous post - met me again today ... i had forgotten that i had made a little summer scene scipture message - with Romans 12:12 click here - so i will try to continue joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer ...
winter continues here in manitoba ... though today was a lovely day for a walk ... and since there was an ice-fishing derby taking place in town, i thought i would share some of the scenes of the day with you!
here is a ski plane that dropped in to do some fishing ... *smile* ...
there was a real good group of fishermen out at the derby ... i stitched 3 pictures together, and still didn't get the complete crowd of folk! days like this are always a boost to the local economy ... we live in cottage country and i'm thinking that the winters can be difficult for the local merchants ... days like this, when the town is teaming with people, are heaven sent for the stores and restaurants!
but we all long for spring to arrive ... when the beaches and parks are filled with folks, enjoying a warmer and more hospitable climate!
do you think "patient in afflication" applies to the length of our winters? *grin* ... blessings on your weekend!
Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops... at all. ~Emily Dickinson
